Shopping Mall In Shanghai Solves Bored Husband Problem

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep with a story that plays to every stereotype of women who love to shop and men who don't. A shopping mall in Shanghai wants to keep people occupied while their spouses shop, and so they have husband storage pods. The Global Harbor mall created them. Husbands or - who knows? - wives who want a break while others shop can sit in a glass booth with chairs and PC gaming setup. It's like the children's playroom at the mall, except for grownups. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
